This was our first time to Dominical, and this Villa has the PERFECT location and amenities! It is within close proximity to both Uvita and Downtown Dominical. Both areas offer plenty of tours, surf, shopping and local dining to satisfy any type of traveler. </p>The Villa is very well kept and offers all of the comforts of home with better views than many (if not all) of the hotels in the area. Arriving at the Villa and finding our adventure around Dominical was a snap using all of the information that the owners provided when we booked with them (it gave us more precise information than the usual concierge). </p>Getting to Dominical, we opted to use GPS and make the drive from SJO to Dominical (vs flying on the commuter) and found the roads to be well maintained; this made our drive time around 3hrs. Along the way we stopped for a sunset dinner at the Villa Caletas in Jaco where we watched the sun melt into the south Pacific from the comfort of our table. Our initial arrival to the Villa was after dark and we were easily able to check-in and get settled for the evening. </p>Waking in the Villa is a spectacular event, with the vibrance and life of the rainforest leading to a spectacular view of the ocean & beach, our senses immediately brought us outdoors to the Villa patio and palapa to start each day. </p>Our days in Dominicalito were filled with adventure. During our stay at the Villa were able to experience the canopy / zipline tour at Hacienda Baru, Adventure Motorsports ATV tours into the San Luis falls and Barucito Valley (elevation ~3,500 ft), and the Costa Canyoning tour of 6 waterfalls in the Uvita area. During these tours and our stay at the Villa were were able to experience the rainforest, and view the local wildlife (monkeys, sloths, lizards, iguanas, butterflys, birds, fish). As our days were mostly filled with exploring the canyons, trails, streams, waterfalls, and jungle; we would head down to the beach in the afternoons for a late lunch and stroll before returning to the Villa in the evening to watch the sunset (the sunset from the Villa is Amazing!). </p>We Highly recommend this Villa as the perfect Costa Rica rental with friendly and helpful owners, new and clean furnishings, appliances, dishes and utensils, amazing views, and a perfect location that memories of a lifetime for us!
